Condolences to family and friends of former STEREOPHONICS drummer and BBC RADIO WALES host STUART CABLE, who died at his home in WALES early TODAY (6/7) at 40. A cause of death has yet to be determined.
CABLE was the original drummer with the Welsh band, playing with them from their 1992 inception through 2003, when he was fired, reportedly for spending too much time on his BBC WALES television talk show "CABLE TV." He subsequently hosted his own show on BBC RADIO WALES and then hosted weekend shows or KERRANG! 105.2/WEST MIDLANDS in 2005-07 and at XFM SOUTH WALES in 2007-08 before returning to BBC RADIO WALES this APRIL, hosting "SATURDAY NIGHT CABLE."
CABLE's autobiography, "Demons and Cocktails -- My Life With The STEREOPHONICS," was released in 2009.
